our purpose

Excel Blades is a family owned and operated manufacturing business based out of Paterson, New Jersey, USA. For 30 years, we have been offering high quality knives, blades and precision tools. These high performance products are used in a variety of fields including industrial, education, office supply, crafts, hobby modeling, fashion design, pool service. Our mission has always been and will always be to offer quality tools with an emphasis on customer service. Quality tools are the essence of any project- whether that be crafting, car wrapping or wood working. We at Excel Blades know that the tool market is flooded with products claiming to be high quality. We did not want to go down the same path that many other tool companies do – mass produced with no regard for the artists using the products. We have spent years talking to and working with customers and consumers about what they look for in their tools. Our founder, Mike Hammam, understood the importance of communication with customers, and maintaining a certain standard of quality. After 30 years, this has not wavered, and our focus is sharper than ever. Through the power of social media, we have conversations daily with our followers. We learn what consumers love, what they need, and what we need to improve. Our constant engagement allows us to evolve with the industries we serve. We are always available to our customers through mail, phone, or through social media @excelblades and we urge you to be a part of that conversation.

our story

Founded by Mike Hammam, a Lebanese immigrant, Excel Blades began with humble beginnings. After 15+ years in the industry, Mike sought out a better way to service the industries’ customers. After founding Excel Blades, his goal was clear: offer high quality products, at a competitive rate, that is available when you need it most. As the company grew from a one man, one desk small business; we have now grown into second generation family business, with over 45 employees, 70,000+ square feet of manufacturing space, and a catalog of over 400 products including a large catalog of American Made blades.
